Root Canal Therapy
A root canal therapy is a procedure commonly used to remove infected nerve tissues within the tooth. The procedure involves removing all infected nerve tissues and fills the canals with a filling material called gutta percha. The tooth normally requires a crown afterward to protect the tooth from fracture.
